Teaching Luke to Smile

While I (of course!) think I have the cutest kid in the world, I fully admit that he is NOT the most photogenic. The primary problem is that he has no clue how to pose for a picture. He either ignores us completely when we're trying to get him to look at the camera, or he takes too big of notice of it and stops being cute and lunges for the lens. So most of our pictures of Luke are like this:

It is very rare that we get a good picture of Luke looking directly at a camera for one, and smiling directly into the camera is practically impossible. He loves cell phones, though, and LOVES for Amber to take pictures of him on her phone. She has been trying to teach him how to smile for her phone. I joined in one day. We would say smile, model it for him, and then try to get him to do it. Here are the results:

I'm pretty sure that's not what we modeled.

And finally one good one.
Probably a fluke-- a Luke fluke.

those are hilarious! I noticed a really cute almost smiling one on the previous post--up close with his hoodie on.

when he gets married and those are the baby pictures in his wedding video, he has only himself to blame.

LOL this reminds me of Calvin when his dad is trying to get a decent picture of him. Every time his dad says, "3," Calvin would make a terrible face.
